Renting a whole apartment or a room from a condominium or townhouse is another possibility. There are several apartment complexes very close to CalArts. Some are within walking distance, but keep in mind that Santa Clarita city blocks can be large and locations are a bit more spread out. Public transportation is available and bicycle lanes make it easier and safer to travel.
